Did you know that poffertjes are originally a French invention? Friars from French monasteries first made them during the French Revolution. Indeed a revolution, because once this delicacy made it to the Netherlands via hawkers and carnivals, the Dutch did not want to go without them.
Poffertjes were first called ‘broedertjes’, meaning ‘little friars’. After they started using a large copper plate to let the poffertjes ‘poffen’, aka pop, the name poffertjes emerged. Actually, not really an extraordinary story, but should the question concerning the name ever arise, then you know the answer. But enough facts. Let’s quickly get back to making this delicious poffertjes recipe.
